What is the coldest climate where humans live?

Oymyakon, Russia, has a substantial, ongoing population of 4,000, and its temperatures have fallen as low as —72 °F ( —58 °C).

People have visited spots even colder, though. In Vostok, Antarctica, people were present when temperatures got down to —89 °F ( —67 °C).

But no one has set up residence there yet.

Too bad—, we suspect the real estate prices would be quite reasonable.
